(5 student reviews)

I have been working as a physics and mathematics lecturer, lab instructor, and tutor for 17 years in major universities in the USA, Australia, and Sri Lanka. I’m currently working all weekdays after 5 pm, as a private tutor primarily tutoring year 10, VCE level, and university level physics and all mathematics units.

Specific Classes I teach:
1) VCE Physics 2) VCE Mathematical Methods 3) VCE Specialist Mathematics 4) VCE Further Mathematics
5) VCE General Mathematics
6) Year 7-10 Mathematics
7) VCE classes just for specific topics ( Example: Circular Functions, Differentiation, etc.)
8) VCE problem solving only classes
9) Undergraduate Physics units
10) Undergraduate Mathematics units
Please contact me to see whether I'm available for new classes, willing to conduct classes for other grades, and if you need any help on other specific university-level subjects (engineering design, engineering mechanics, nuclear physics, medical radiations, etc).

I would like to have an initial one-hour meeting to identify the student’s needs and I usually assess the student’s pre-knowledge with a thirty mins diagnostic test. The result of this test will then be used to prepare my lessons to cater to the individual needs of the students. A regular class will consist of theory explanations, problem-solving using exercises/online quizzes, and topic discussions. Each week there will be regular homework sheets which will take about a maximum of one hour to complete.

The initial meeting and the diagnostic test are free of charge for VCE students. In addition, the first class is half price.

If you are a university student, the initial meeting is free of charge. This meeting is just to introduce myself, get to know you, discuss your requirements, and especially to understand where you stand.

I usually cover all topics in advance for VCE students and then work on past papers and revision type questions. Finally, if three or more students like to have a small group class, I offer a discounted hourly rate for each student.

"I've been taking physics classes with Dr Nilanka since mid 2021 and he has been very helpful and patient in helping me with my VCE physics. I am definitely very happy with the way he conducts my lessons."
